I'm trying to synchronize NI PXIe 5122 (100 MS/s, 14-Bit Digitizer/Oscilloscope) with NI PXIe-6356 (Simultaneous X Series Data Acquisition). Does anyone have any example that can be useful (about synchronization NI PXIe 5122 with some DAQmx card, such as NI PXIe 6356) ?
I saw, that you opened another thread with the same topic here: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Synchronization-NI-PXIe-5122-with-NI-PXIe-6356/m-p/2196986#M703735
I think it's enough to discuss this issue in this topic, so I will post there the link of this topic.
Regarding to the
- 15th page of the specification of PXIe 5122 (http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/371172m.pdf), it has a PLL Reference Clock source
=> at PXI_CLK10 (backplane connector)
=> at CLK IN (front panel SMB connector)
Both inputs hhav a frequency range from 1 MHz to 20 MHz in 1 MHz increments. The default is 10 MHz frequency.
- 8th page of the specification of PXIe 6536 (http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/370082b.pdf), it can use the
=> PXIe_CLK100 (100 MHz)
=> PXIe_DSTAR<A, B> (10, 20, 100 MHz)
=> PXI_STAR (10, 20 MHz) (The PXI star trigger is a feature implemented on National Instruments PXI chassis: http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/370524L-01/nisignal_generators_help/integration_pxi_star_tri...)
=> PXI_TRIG <0..7> (10, 20 MHz)
=> PFI <0..15> (10, 20 MHz)
as reference clock locking frequency.

Depending on how you configure your device, X Series devices use one of three synchronization methods:
• 100 MHz Source Mode
• External Source Greater than 25 MHz
• External or Internal Source Less than 25 MHz
Could yo go through on my reply?
Did it help?
Do you have any question?
Please do not hesitate to post them.
I was not able to respond earlier. Your answer was useful. I solved the problem few days ago. Thanks!
